The hon. member did not get any more information than I did at the time. I have received information from the Department of Indian Affairs. We have the statement of an hon. gentleman who sits in front of the hon. member for Winnipeg North (Mr. Heaps) which appeared in an official publication when that gentleman was a minister in the Bennett government that there was less unemployment, and more employment, in 1930 than in the years before. We have that evidence, and the hon. member knows it very well.
When hon. members opposite left office there were 1,258,421 on relief.
